We are more than design, more than a pretty face. We are more than pushing pixels. We are Trent Creative.

The best test of design and its success is when it meets or exceeds the business goals of our clients needs. It is not about giving our client what they think they need but supplying our client with what works.

We build brands and implement growth strategies for companies from $2 million to $400 million. We do this through strategic branding and positioning, website design, corporate communications, videos, social media, content and guerilla marketing and print & digital media.

Unconventional solutions based upon strategic design thinking

At Trent Creative, we believe in the power of meaningful messages executed to a high standard with beautiful design and strategic thinking. Our strategic design process is executed after the brand development is complete. This methodology reaches the intended marketing goals and ultimately drives growth for each client that we serve.

Our story – reinterpreting the status quo

Marilyn Trent, a forward-thinking and enterprising leader is the owner and creative director. She founded Trent Design in 1992 armed with a degree in art, a passion for good design, and the unique ability to get to the core of complex information. Over the past 27 years, she and her team have created an innovative branding, marketing and design firm built upon a solid foundation of customer care and satisfaction.

Our philosophy - our community

Our business model is to focus on environmental and social responsibility while taking care of the needs of our clients, employees, and vendors.

Marilyn believes in corporate social responsibilty and her involvement in her community is ongoing. She founded the Rochester Green City Committee and has sat on the Board of Directors for the Downtown Development Authority of Rochester since 2004. She is also the Secretary of the Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

Don’t just take our word for it…

We hired Marilyn and her team at Trent Creative to collaborate with us on a series of marketing projects aimed at increasing overall awareness and educating our target market. Trent Creative was fantastic to work with and invested heavily in getting to know our business. They asked the right questions and provided wise counsel when needed. The entire team was engaged and invested in a successful outcome. Ultimately, the creative work the Trent team completed for us was exceptional. I recommend Trent Creative to anyone looking to retain a creative partner that does top shelf work!

We learned a lot by working with Trent Creative. A lot about who we are and a lot about the rebranding process. We have new followers and fans, improved our funding base, and now better connect our work to our clients.
